Stoked and Broke

A Staycation Surfari Epic on Zero Dollars…

Making their own boards, bamboo rickshaws, solar cookers, and hobo stoves, surfers Ryan Burch and Cyrus Sutton set off on a thirty mile, eight day walk through San Diego, CA. But what begins as a guide to taking a minimalist surfing journey, quickly becomes an examination of freedom vs alienation.

Starring: San Diego, Ryan Burch, Cyrus Sutton, Richard Kenvin, Lucas Dirkse, Eric Snortum, Glen Horn, Roberta Horn and Kneeboard Steve

Soundtrack by The Blank Tapes and Mike McCarthy

A member of the “Entitlement generation,” Cyrus Sutton was born and raised at the heart of Orange County during the height of 80′s consumerism. However, lengthy minimalist excursions into oceanic and mountainous wildernesses gave him a perspective not shared by many his age. His surf related projects include “Riding Waves” which he made at the ripe age of nineteen, “Under the Sun” which was featured at the inaugural NYSFF and “Tom’s Creation Plantation.” At 23 he won an EMMY for his work on “A Tsunami Relief Story” for Fuel TV and his latest project was recently been voted the best surf blog in world in Surfer Magazine’s “Battle of the Blogs” poll.
